Multi awarded Italian Production Designer and Art Director based in Los Angeles.


For 15 years, I honed my skills in Marketing and as a Production Designer/Art Director in Italy, collaborating with various Brands. My work encompassed a diverse range of creative projects, including photo shoots, artistic installations, exhibition stands, videos, advertising campaigns, and more. From conceptualization and budgeting to overseeing production and directing, I handled every aspect of the creative process.

In 2016, I embarked on a new chapter in Los Angeles, transitioning seamlessly into the world of film production. I took on roles as a Production Designer and Art Director, contributing my expertise to movies, music videos, TV series, and theatrical productions. I'm proud to say that I achieved exceptional results, all while infusing my work with the distinctive European/Italian style that has garnered widespread appreciation.
